Attention MarJohn Fans: The End Is Near
I’m sure that all of you John and Marlena fans out there already have the date circled on your calendars.
But in case you don’t, John and Marlena (Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall) exit Salem and “Days of Our Lives” Friday, January 23rd.
I’ve been taping “Days” this week so I can see how their story wraps up. But after reading what’s going to happen in “TV Guide” and “Soap Opera Digest,” I’m not sure why I’m bothering.
I won’t spoil the story for you, but I will tell you it’s so lame I want to cry…
I knew there was going to be a quantum leap ending, but a lame twist? It’s bad enough that the show is axing its most popular duo, but now we’re not even getting the ending we—and they—deserve.
It’s just wrong!
Maybe that’s why NBC’s only acknowledgement of the duo’s departure is a lame promo that mostly focuses on the show’s newest obsession, Daniel and Chloe (They couldn’t have axed one of them?).
There’s not even a tribute on the show’s website. Thankfully we’ve got YouTube for that…
The new issue of “Digest,” which hits shelves Friday also pays tribute to the couple.
Too bad “Days” couldn’t have done the same…
